Chemical Resistance

of Styrene
Copolymers

Chemical Resistance of Luran (SAN), Terluran


(ABS), Luran S (ASA and ASA+PC), Terlux
(MABS) and Luranyl (PPE + PS-I)
The following table gives an overview of the chemical resistance
of styrene copolymers and
(PPE + PS-I) blends:
The resistance to specific chemicals is given in the table below.
Assessment

The symbols and abbreviations


used have the following meanings:

= resistant over a period of


months to years

= limited resistance: some


swelling, solvation or
environmental stress
cracking is possible

= not resistant: severe


swelling, decomposition,
solvation or environmental
stress cracking

soln. = saturated aqueous solution

Percentages given in brackets are


the concentrations (% by weight)
of aqueous solutions unless otherwise stated.

It should be noted that some


chemicals (e.g. sodium hypochlorite) may cause color changes
in colored plastics.

It should be noted that the values


in the table generally relate to the
pure chemicals. Industrial grade
chemicals, foodstuffs and other
preparations frequently contain
auxiliaries or impurities which may
significantly affect performance.

Therefore, these tables can only


give guidelines for the expected
performance of moldings made
from the plastics mentioned.
Practical tests are essential to
give definitive results.

Another significant factor determining chemical resistance is the


existence of internal stresses
within a molding. Chemicals to
which stress-free styrene copolymers are resistant, for example
pentane, hexane and heptane,
can cause cracking when combined with mechanical stress.
